Ashadh Shukla 14, Kaliyug Varsha 5114
The objective of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti to convene the ‘All India Hindu Convention’ was to inspire Hindus throughout Bharat for the cause of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra and become pro-active collectively towards this historic mission. The experience we had before and after the Convention about some of the Hindus invited for the Convention and their behaviour were an indicator that they were not matured enough to work towards establishment of the Hindu Rashtra. This article throws light on their inappropriate behaviour and elaborates on appropriate viewpoints to be adopted in this regard.
Objective underlying the article
In this article we have explained in details the inappropriate actions of the Hindus we noticed. However, we do not wish to narrate their mistakes and criticise them with a pre-conceived opinion. The objective is to correct their viewpoints on the concept of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra.
A. Similar Conventions will be held in future in every State and District. The participating Hindus should have a clear understanding about the objective of the Convention.
B. Hindus who behaved in an inappropriate manner should read the article and introspect. They should accept the mistakes without
hesitation and try to correct them in future.
C. The Hindu Rashtra will be a model Nation in all respects ! The behaviour of the Hindus making efforts to establish such a Nation should also be model. Just as a drop of oil cannot merge in water, those with inappropriate behaviour towards establishment of the Hindu Rashtra will also not merge totally with the concept of Hindu Rashtra.
D. Hindus should get accustomed to transparent system of functioning ! This article is an example of transparency. Society likes
transparency. It trusts those who are transparent about their functioning. We have learned from the history of the Hindu political parties and well established large organisations that the society does not trust them if the they continue to overlook the mistakes. Each dealing in the Hindu Rashtra will be transparent !
E. From the viewpoint of Hindus, the task of their own organisation is an individual (Vyashti) task whereas, consolidation of Hindus for establishment of the Hindu Rashtra is a collective (Samashti) task. The awareness should be created among the Hindus that it is the duty of each of us to preserve the Samashti.
F. Hindu Rashtra is like the giant bow of Deity Shiva and to become worthy of lifting it, everyone should develop his behaviour, thoughts and speech that commensurate with it.
We pray unto the Holy feet of God that by reading this article, may the Hindus behave in a manner that is complementary to the mission of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra and may they achieve this uphill task !
1. A senior Hindu leader expressed his stand that ‘The Convention should not be for 5 days’ only after the date and duration of the convention were finalised with the consent of all concerned, instead of expressing it well in advance.
1 A. Inappropriate action : The date and duration were finalised only after taking into account the views of a few prominent Hindu leaders about the convenience of all concerned. After the date of the Convention was finalised, a Hindu activist asked the workers of the Samiti, “Why is the Convention for 5 days ? Are you taking our training camp or what ?” He added, “I will attend the Convention only for 3 days”. Thereafter he decided to attend it for 4 days and later when the Convention commenced, he liked the proceedings and decided to attend it for all the five days.
1 B. Correct action
1. Devout Hindus should express their opinion at an appropriate time so that their opinion will form a part of decision-making process.
2. Once a decision is taken with the consent of all, the opinion to change the decision should be expressed only if the decision is
harmful in any way.
3. If there is nothing harmful in the decision taken with the consent of all, the decision should be accepted by all. (The decision about the date and duration of the Convention was not changed because it was not harmful for the Samashti in any way.)
4. The opinion expressed should in no way be a incidental reaction; but it should be based on a well-studied and matured
thought and should display politeness.
2. Some Hindus came for the Convention in Goa not with the lofty goal of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra; but to have a pleasure trip of sight-seeing !
2 A. Inappropriate action : Some Hindus, on receipt of invitation for the Convention, informed over telephone, “We are coming for the Convention a few days earlier. We have to go for sight-seeing in Goa. Please make our lodging arrangement”.
2 B. Correct viewpoint : Hindus should sacrifice personal desires and ambitions in Samashti life (task); because the priorities in Samashti life are different.
3. Some Hindus informed superficially that they would attend the Convention but actually did not make the necessary travel arrangements (Reservations) !
3 A. Inappropriate action : On receipt of invitation, a few Hindus informed the Samiti of their desire to attend it and also registered their names. It was necessary to fill up the information about reservations of inward and outward journey in the column of the form to be filled for registration. This information was necessary to make arrangements for their food, residence and local transport etc. However, in spite of repeated follow-up by the coordinators of the Samiti, they conveniently observed silence but informed their firm decision to attend the Convention. On the day of Convention, it was learnt that they would not come. Since it was assumed that they would come and thus unnecessary time and energy of the organisers was wasted in making arrangements for their food, residence etc.
3 B. Correct action : Devout Hindus should inform their firm decision so that the time of the organisers will not be wasted.
3 C. Correct viewpoint
1. Truth is the foundation of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra. So Hindus should refrain from behaving in an inappropriate manner that is devoid of truth.
2. To behave in a manner that will inconvenience others means to create ill-will among others. This reduces others’ trust in us.
4. A devout Hindu had firmly decided to attend the Convention but failed to make travel reservations in time !
4 A. Inappropriate action : Several Hindus had decided to attend the Convention; but did not make the required railway reservations
in time. This caused last-minute panic in getting reservations. Some had to travel in a general compartment of railways.
4 B. Correct action : When a decision is taken to attend an important event, necessary travel reservations should immediately be made.
4 C. Correct viewpoint : Every aspect in the Hindu Rashtra will be pre-planned ! Hence, a beginning should be made, starting from ourselves, to live a planned life and that too, now !
5. Directionless Hindus who have missed the Convention only because they could not give correct priority to the cause of protection of Dharma !
5 A. Inappropriate action : A Hindu Organisation in a State took a decision to take direct action against an anti-Hindu activity. The date of direct action was 7th June whereas, the Convention was to begin on 10th June. As there was a possibility of arrest of the leaders of this organisation, the organisation was required to give priority to one of the two events. Since it took the decision of direct action, its leaders missed the historic Convention !
5 B. Correct viewpoint : True protection of Hindu Dharma can be achieved only after establishment of the Hindu Rashtra. Hence, it would have been desirable from point of view of the greater goal of protection of Dharma to participate in the Convention which is a part of Hindus’ efforts for establishment of the Hindu Rashtra.
6. A careless Hindu who did not read the invitation card of the Convention properly !
6 A. Incident : The invitation card of the Convention to be held between 10th and 14th June was sent to the devout Hindus 2 months in advance. On 13th May 2012, a Hindu called the Samiti’s coordinator on mobile phone at dawn and asked, “I could not be present for the first 3 days of the Convention. Will it be alright if I reach there this morning by a flight ?” When the Samiti coordinator informed him that the Convention was not in that month but in the next month, he heaved a sigh of relief.
6 B. Correct action
1. We should read every letter that we receive carefully.
2. When we decide to participate in an activity, we should promptly make necessary planning as per the date.
6 C. Correct viewpoint : If there is extreme carelessness in Samashti life, Hindus will not be able to carry out the task of establishment
of the Hindu Rashtra in a disciplined manner.
7. A Hindu advocate did not attend the Convention as per the instructions of his political party !
7 A. Incident : An eminent advocate who is a member of the central committee of a pro-Hindu political party was ready to attend the Convention; however, before leaving for the Convention, he was instructed by the party’s office not to attend it. Hence, he did not attend. With this incident, we could experience the false Hindu activism of a party which makes tall claims of bringing Ram Rajya in Bharat.
7 B. Correct viewpoint
1. Devout Hindus should be more loyal to a principle than to a party.
2. It is appropriate to throw away the yoke of party policies for the sake of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra.
8. The discourteous Hindus who received a formal letter about their speech in the Convention did not attend the Convention nor did they take the trouble of informing the organisers about it !
8 A. Inappropriate action : Speeches of all the scholar Hindus on the topics of their respective fields were arranged. After finalisation of the agenda, all of them were informed about the date of their speech. In spite of receipt of this letter, about 25% Hindus did not attend the Convention nor did they have minimum courtesy to inform the organisers that they would not attend. As a result, the organisers had to make several changes in the agenda at the eleventh hour.
8 B. Correct viewpoint
1. It is a sign of civilised behaviour to inform properly if we are not able to attend the already planned programme.
2. It is the best work culture to answer each letter we receive.
3. As the Hindu Rashtra will create an ideal of courteous attitude, devout Hindus should behave courteously in both individual and Samashti life.
9. Some Hindus took a stand that ‘since the chief of an organisation was not invited, we will not attend the Convention’.
9 A. Inappropriate action : A devout Hindu in a state had several personality defects, and hence, he was not invited for the Convention. Some Hindus in his region took the stand that ‘since he is not invited, we shall also not attend the Convention’.
9 B. Correct action
1. Hindus should try to understand the reasoning behind an unacceptable aspect from the individuals concerned and then express their opinion or take a decision.
2. While expressing an opinion or taking a decision, Hindus should ensure that it is not based on emotion.
9 C. Correct viewpoint : In the task of establishment of Hindu Rashtra, loyalty to a principle is important and not loyalty to an individual; hence, such behaviour is inappropriate.
10. A Hindu expressed unhappiness over the invitation to the chief of another organisation.
10 A. Inappropriate action : Two Hindu organisations in a State are at loggerheads. However, both of them have been participating in the Samiti’s activities on protection of Dharma. Hence, the Samiti invited the chiefs of both the organisations. A chief of one organisation expressed unhappiness before the Samiti’s state coordinator over the invitation to the chief of the other organisation.
10 B. Correct viewpoint
1. It is not the task of one or two individuals to establish the Hindu Rashtra. The task warrants giant strength of Hindu consolidation. Hence, the Hindus should have a clean viewpoint of ‘consolidation of Hindus for the Hindu Rashtra’ !
2. In a Samashti mission, Hindus should keep away their personal difference of opinions, pre-conceived notions etc.
11. Some narrow-minded Hindus attended the Convention only to deliver their own speech !
11 A. Inappropriate action : After the agenda was prepared, it was sent to all the Hindus on behalf of the Samiti and they were informed of the scheduled date of their speech. Some Hindus remained present in the Convention only on the day of their speech or a couple of days.
11 B. Correct viewpoint
1. The Convention provided an excellent opportunity for exchange of experiences, introduction to each other, and discussion on the problems of Hindus. Besides, the Convention was to give directions for the establishment of the Hindu Rashtra and hence, the Hindus were expected to remain present for the entire duration of the Convention.
2. The narrow minded attitude of being present for the Convention merely as a guest in the great mission of establishment of the Hindu Rashtra is not appropriate. Conversely, we should adopt the view that ‘this is my own mission’ and be in the forefront !
12. After other speakers expressed their views in the Convention, a Hindu went on the dais and expressed contradictory views on the topic.
12 A. Inappropriate action : A Hindu who did not agree to the views of another Hindu in a session immediately went on the stage and began to contradict those views; this created confusion among the audience about whose views should be treated as correct.
12 B. Correct action
1. In a Convention, it is already decided who should speak and when. Going on the stage abruptly and expressing opinion grossly violates discipline.
2. If an individual has an objection to an aspect, he/she should call on the organisers and express his/her opinion. If the organisers deem it fit, they will allow him/her to express it on the stage or tell the opinion through the medium of the host of the programme.
3. If the organisers do not accept the opinion, he/she should not feel sorry for that; it is not desirable from the larger perspective of consolidation of Hindus.
